euNetworks Group Limited (SGX: H23.SI), a pan-European bandwidth infrastructure provider, today announced it has connected up London’s newest addition to the data centre market. Connectivity services from euNetworks will be available when Volta’s data centre becomes operational early in 2013.
Today euNetworks serves the London market with scalable bandwidth connections. Companies range from the tech and digital businesses located in Tech City, to media companies, to Internet service providers and the financial services community who demand ultra-low latency connections.
Volta’s new Great Sutton Street facility is set to become one of Central London’s most advanced and resilient data centres. Based in immediate proximity to Tech City and London’s Soho media district as well as the City’s financial district, the site is ideally
located to cater to companies operating in these sectors. This combined with Volta’s new connectivity partnership with euNetworks, delivers a service offering tailored to meet the needs of these important and growing sectors.
“As a bandwidth infrastructure provider, connecting to data centres and other high bandwidth buildings in our operating cities is vital to being able to serve our customers and drive more value out of our unique city-based fibre assets,” said David Selby, Vice President of Product and Strategy at euNetworks. “We’re delighted to be working with Volta as they bring their new facility to market. We will be able to quickly deliver high speed bandwidth to the varying companies who will be attracted to colocate in the Great Sutton Street facility.”
Julian King, commercial director at Volta, said, “It’s extremely encouraging to see that London’s media and technology hub is attracting inward investment from major tech corporations, media and digital businesses alike. As this area becomes increasingly populated, it is equally important that the infrastructure that supports and enables this developing eco-system is readily available. Working with leading carriers like euNetworks, we are investing in providing support for London based companies, delivering the low-latency connectivity and bandwidth upon which their businesses rely so heavily.”
